A private Science|Business Network dinner (18:30 – 21:30 CET)
With Horizon Europe now one year into its implementation, interest levels in the EU's flagship R&I programme appear to be on the rise again in other parts of the world. Against this backdrop, it is a suitable moment to take stock of the international case for association to Horizon: who has already come on board, and perhaps more importantly, who else may be signing on the dotted line in the months to come, from neighbourhoods near and far?
The answers matter greatly to many of Europe's science, technology and innovation leaders as they try to anticipate the prospects for new cross-border cooperation and joint initiatives with non-EU partners - including the UK and Switzerland. In this private dinner debate on March 10, Network members will have the opportunity to discuss the past, present and future with Signe Ratso, DG Research's deputy director-general and chief negotiator for association to Horizon.
